The Albany Hotel
St Andrews, Scotland
The Albany Hotel overview
The Albany Hotel is a small and friendly boutique townhouse hotel located in the heart of St. Andrews, with 22 guest rooms of different sizes and layouts. Dating back to 1764, this delightful Georgian terraced house is privately owned, offering a very personal level of service.
The Garden restaurant serves a delicious and locally sourced Scottish breakfast, whilst the Bar Lounge is the prime place to spend your evenings sampling the extensive collection of Scottish whiskeys and beers available.
This is the ‘home of golf’ with multiple world-class courses to choose from. Obviously, the Old Course is the big draw, however the New, Jubilee and more recent Castle courses are arguably just as good if not better. Carnoustie and Kingsbarns are also close by, both of which need no introduction.
All 22 guest rooms have en-suite bathrooms, are comfortable and well-appointed, and are of differing sizes and layouts to suit all types of guests.
Restaurant & Bars
The Garden restaurant, which opens onto a delightful walled garden and patio, offers a substantial breakfast menu – either continental or the full cooked Scottish breakfast. And after a hard day on the links, the Bar Lounge is the prime place to spend your evenings next to an open fire and sampling the extensive collection of Scottish whiskeys and beers available.
The Albany Hotel is situated on North Street, which is one of 3 main streets in the center of St Andrews and could not be in a better location from which to experience the home of golf and other surrounding world-famous golf courses. Best international access is via either Edinburgh or Glasgow airports.
Golf courses near to The Albany Hotel
A tough links course that opened in 2008, making the Castle Course the latest addition to the St Andrews Links portfolio of courses. Superb coastal views along this interesting clifftop layout.
Perhaps the most underrated of the St Andrews courses, the Jubilee is full of character and variety. Originally opened in 1897, it underwent changes in 1988 to elevate it to championship standard.
Often overshadowed by the Old Course, the New Course is a very enjoyable links layout that will test all parts of your game. Opened in 1895 and therefore one of the oldest ‘new’ courses in the world.
A great Old Tom Morris design dating back over 100 years, this is links golf as it used to be played with many of the original hole routings still in play today. A short layout but nonetheless a true test.
Leven Links Golf Course
Having played host to the British Open Championship on several occasions, this fantastic par-71 links course tests every level of golfer. Leven Links is a great venue to try out during your next golf vacation.
